Boris Johnson has been moved to the intensive care unit (ICU).

The British Prime Minister was moved into a London hospital after his COVID-19 symptoms worsened over the weekend.

“Over the course of this afternoon, the condition of the Prime Minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital,'' his office said in a statement.

Downing St, said Johnson was conscious and does not require ventilation at the moment, but was in the intensive care unit in case he needed it later.

Hours earlier,  Johnson tweeted that he was in good spirits after spending a night in hospital.

It was announced on March 27 that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
